Two new main road signs were erected last week on the Bruce Highway (Pacific Coast Way) promoting the Capricorn Coast Tourist Drive to the north and south of the Yeppoon turn off.
Sincere thanks to the Department of Transport and Main Roads, which was able to use some remaining funds in the State Strategic Touring Route signage project and approached Capricorn Enterprise in March about renewing these two signs, one outside the Heritage Village for visitors heading south and one opposite the CQUniversity for visitors heading north.
These signs replaced the former pictorial picture signs which were erected nearly 15 years ago.
These new signs are in addition to the Capricorn Way touring route signage project Capricorn Enterprise worked on three years ago, which resulted in the gorgeous pictorial signs including Byfield, Keppel Islands, Caves, Yeppoon entry signs as well as signs through Rockhampton (Mount Archer National Park, Botanic Gardens/Zoo, Mount Morgan) and all the way through Blackwater (Blackdown Tableland NP and Bedford Weir) to the Sapphire Gemfields. That project was about $300,000 worth of signs and these two recent additions are worth another $20,000 or so.
Capricorn Enterprise have worked with DTMR for many years and we value our long standing relationship on a number of signage, rest area and tourism policy projects over time.
